Fair Access Protocol

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Every Local Authority must have a Fair Access Protocol under the Admissions Code as a means to secure In-Year places for vulnerable children and those that cannot secure a place. This new protocol supports a fairer, more proportionate system to place children promptly.


That Cabinet approves the introduction of a new Fair Access Protocol for Warwickshire Schools from January 2024 to support a more efficient and effective way of placing children where we have been unable to secure a school place.
